Smile Makeover with Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are small pieces of tooth-colored porcelain that have made a significant impact in esthetic dentistry. In fact, several of the popular “makeover” shows owe much of their success to the beauty of the porcelain veneer! Veneers can improve smiles that have crooked or widely spaced teeth. They can make short teeth longer and dark teeth lighter. In fact, because most veneers are made from porcelain, they resist staining from things like food and coffee, which means that your beautiful white smile will be just as white in 10 years!
It’s Really Pretty Simple
And while many of these same improvements can be accomplished with orthodontics (braces) and bleaching (whitening), one of the great advantages of veneers is that they are typically finished in as little as 2 weeks, while many orthodontic cases can take 2 years. That makes porcelain veneers a great choice for many adults who don’t want to wait upto 2 years for results, and may have already worn braces in the past. Ask your dentist if porcelain veneers may be right for you!
